While many bars mix drinks the way fast food joints crank out meals — buying large amounts of prepared ingredients, freezing materials to last longer, cutting corners to save money, and making each drink as quickly as possible — more and more places are handcrafting their cocktails. These establishments are going way beyond Scotch and sodas by taking their mixology to the next level with fresh ingredients including produce, homemade mixers, premium liquors, and even handcarved ice. While many bartenders are designing their own drinks, even classics are being reinvented by these artisans’ attention to detail. Find out where to find these kind of fresh and flavorful libations with our list of the Top 10 Bars for Craft Cocktails in the U.S.
